OH MY GOODNESS! Thanks to a reader on doll diaries, the GOTY 2011’s name was discovered!!!!!!!!!!

Her name will be Kanani, and the titles of her first book is said to be “Aloha Kanani!”! ISN’T THIS AWESOME!?!? SHE WILL BE HAWAIIAN! Itching to know what the book description is?!?!?!? Well, it is here too!

Found on

Girl of the Year 2011 Book 1:
“Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) loves living in a beautiful tropical island setting and she especially loves sharing the wonders of her island home with visitors. So when her cousin from New York comes to stay for a month, she is excited to get to know her. But no matter what she does to help her cousin feel at home, it seems to only her unhappy instead. Can Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) find a way to connect with her cousin?”

My opinion: Hmmm…..  I love a Hawaiian girl, but her first story seems a tad bit stale, to me. But I’m sure that our new girl will make herself home at American Girl and her story will be a great one! 🙂

Already excited for the next book? Well guess what, we have it too! It’s said to called “Good Job Kanani!”, but some book websites don’t have this information yet. Here’s the description which can be found at “Langton Info Services,”:

“Girl of the Year 2011 Book 2:
Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) is excited about selling shaved ice to raise money for a cause she cares about. But she also cares about her best friend-and promised they would take surfing lessons together. When Our Girl of the Year can’t make time for her best friend, their friendship begins to unravel, and she finds herself spending summer days alone. Will Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) make things right?”

My Opinion: “This one sounds sounds interesting to me! I think I will like Kanani!”

You may not believe it, but when I was younger, before I got into AG, I was a Lilo & Stitch FANATIC. I had a Stitch stuffed animal who I loved,  wanted a Lilo-and-Stitch room, and even got mad at Disney when they didn’t promote them enough! LOL! If they had came out with this doll when I was at the age, I would have begged for her! Heehee. This doll definitely reminds me of Lilo, and I bet she’ll look like her too. Maybe I’ll have to make that her middle name if I get her, bringing back some young memories. 😉
